What is Onyx?


21st Century Lifelong Learning

We provide learning experiences for adult learners, teachers, coaches, and anyone on the journey toward learning mastery. We emphasize seeking a personal, academic, and professional purpose for all learning endeavors. This begins with our Onyx 101 self-directed learning course at Onyx Academy.


Academic Network & Resources

We stand for learners to have access to the necessary tools, knowledge, support, and systems that are best suited to facilitating their success and development. All Onyx initiatives produce both profit-generating and freely accessible resources, along with recommendations of high quality partners.

Why "Onyx" Education?

If Merriam-Webster defines the Ivory Tower as "a secluded place that affords the means of treating practical issues with an impractical often escapist attitude," then the Onyx Tower is a globally relevant and universally accessible place that facilitates progression toward success through self-determined interest in practical issues and actionable problems.
Onyx does not utilize a conventional application process when accepting members of our institution. Instead, Onyx is an always-available digital academic institution that provides access to knowledge and a wide selection of coaching, concierge, consultation, and facilitation services.
Our courseware is built according to our own Platinum Standard for our members, who are provided with our curated selection of the immense opportunities the world presents for personal growth, lifelong learning, and teaching success.

Onyx learning experiences form a network of opportunities for developing your academic skills.

World-Class Coaching
